still very close. let me bring in washington post columnist dana millbank and molly ball. good morning. >> good morning. >> hi. >> let's start by talking about the president's response to the hurricane. a poll shows 78% view his response positively. what do you think, dana? is this helping him? >> well, i think it's sort of unseenly to try to gauge out who benefits from human tragedy. certainly, whoever is in charge, if it's the president, if he doesn't have a hurricane katrina response, there's going to be some rallying effect whenever there's a national crisis. this seems to have benefitted the president. he hasn't made any obvious mistakes. now, of course, there's still a bit of time, but i think by the time people become disenchanted with the response, that'll be sometime after the election day. so it does appear that mother nature is voting democratic this year. >> well, the images of the president and chris christie have been everywhere. of course, christie has been very outspoken as the rnc keynote speaker. he describes obama as, quote, blindly walking around the white h
executive editor of msnbc.com. and michelle cottle, washington correspondent for newsweek and "the daily beast." thank you both for being here. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, it's not a surprise but it seem like we're in a phase where behind the romney smile is a very rough campaign? >> absolutely. we've got a few days left. we have entered the phase of the campaign where time and again you can go there and get the little bit of an edge and radio ads that are shocking, billboards that are deceptive, voter suppression, voter intimidation, whatever it takes. >> voter subpoena prek, voter intimidation. but linking the president to hugo chavez and say we don't believe in god we trust? this is way beyond the boundaries. >> you have to hit people in the gut. you're not appealing to reason at this point, if you ever are, in a presidential campaign. you've got to get them in a gut level to get your allies all fired up and to, you know, hopefully get anybody still on the fence to really just kind of find some way to get through to them and get them over to your side. >> richard, what does this say?
in the "washington post" today by ed rogers talking about the five things that are really difficult for him to overcome having had a bad first four years. >> bob: you can say that about bush's first term when he came in behind by half a million votes. he did all right. i don't think it has that much impact. you have to win by the electoral college. you hear the republicans crying for days after that. if romney wins the popular vote. >> eric: your number is big. >> kimberly: how do you get to that map -- >> dana: one thing that ed henry talked about the campaigns are going. three places that obama is not going. north carolina, florida, only one stop in virginia. they are worried about ohio. >> bob: having done campaigns before, the last thing you do now is schedule people. the schedule is the only thing to hold and get out the vote. >> dana: i was sorryed he went to boulder, colorado. are you worried about that? >> bob: hold down the vote. >> eric: what are the three states if obama loses any one of them axelrod has to change -- >> dana: minnesota, michigan, pennsylvania. >> eric: wi
